An alliance has been formed and the battle lines are drawn, computers and televisions are becoming obsolete due to the fact that they do the same thing and their isn’t enough room for the both of us.
Televisions provide media that are interactive, play movies, music, deliver news, contain millions of colours, have sound and video, inform, entertain, communicate and motivate we as educationalists. Sounds familiar? Computers do the exact same function.
So the two are facing each other and have reached a crossroads, but on this road there isn’t enough room for one to pass the other. Like a cataclysmic event similar to the LHC the synergy is prophesised and the light is beaming on a CompuTVe, also known as a TV and Computer in one.
People will not be concerned about where the television is beaming in from, but it will continually be evident it will be streamed in on the copper wires instead of SKY or digital satellite.
When you sit down stare at your TV and relish the idea that although it may be the latest HD flat widescreen TV, its days were numbered the moment you purchased it without internet access. The CompuTVe will pause movies when someone is ringing you on Skype, play music and do everything you wanted from your computer and TV.
What does this mean for education? Much of a muchness really, the added fact will be that teachers will truly be able to watch streamed events as they happen without looking very far for it.
